The Young Philadelphians: Live in Tokyo is a live album by Marc Ribot's Young Philadelphians which was recorded in Japan in 2014 and released on the Enja Records Yellowbird label.
Writing for All About Jazz, Mark Corroto stated, "The left turn here is Ribot's logical mish-mash (not an oxymoron) of classic Philly soul with elements of Ornette Coleman's electric Prime Time band. … The disc is packed full of rump shaking steak and cheese party sounds". The Irish Times' Cormac Larkin stated, "The result is a boisterous romp of an album, like a disco recording from some dystopian, alternative universe".
